A Coordination Organization Regulation Program for Everyone
Coordination | Organization | Regulation for Everyone
The C.O.R.E. program builds body awareness through passive and active engagement to promote organization of muscle control
as well as
to learn, practice and implement sensory regulation strategies
to complete activities of daily living with greater independence
This program focuses on improving:
Motor Control and Accuracy
Gross Coordination and Refined Coordination
Regulation of Attention and Affect
Daily Living Skill Acquisition
The C.O.R.E. program builds independence for adults with special needs in Daily Living Skills through engaging in activities that develop:
Postural Stability and Righting Reactions
Dexterity and Manual Manipulation
Motor and Activity Sequencing
These components are individually approached and supported for each participant to develop at their own rate, individually or in a small group setting.
Each session participants engage in sensory-based movement activities to promote improved body use and accuracy as well as an appropriate regulation state for sustained engagement in activities.
Each session provides exposure and practice with movement, regulation and daily living skill objectives. The activities are provided individually or in a small group setting with modifications to meet and challenge each participant’s growing level of ability.
An integral component of the program is that it follows a loose but structured routine. In this way, it offers participants some comfort in knowing what to expect as they work to build familiarity and greater ease in using their body in new ways and focusing on improving independence in daily living skills.
Common activities participants may engage in include:
Motor Obstacle Course Building Recreation Skills Dressing Tasks
Sequencing Job Tasks Building Community Skills Grooming Tasks
